Well, apparently it wasn't done, so I did it.  The (in progress)  
result is here:

I'm having a problem with Safari showing the map properly  
*sometimes*.  I'm working on that.

The other problem I'm having is that this isn't going to be a drop-in  
kind of deal that will work with Pages.  Pages don't have the same  
hooks for actions and filters that regular posts do.  I really want  
this to work with Pages, so I guess I'll have to provide a sample  
template, but I think that this is a shortcoming of WordPress that  
really undermines the usability of Pages...  Should I report a bug on  
this, or is it a known area of enhancement?
